One thing you can guarantee about the recently deceased is that they don’t want to be deceased in any way what so ever. So it was for Simon who woke up in the strangest place he had ever been in in his life, or now his afterlife.
The first thing to remember is that the sun doesn’t shine that warm yellow here it is more of a grey yellow, the next thing is that the only difference between sun shine an moon shine is that the sun is slightly brighter. That is how the underworld looks to the long term deceased.
The next thing to learn here is that there are no pearly white gates to greet you, nor is there any judging or any guide book to put you in the picture on how things really work in the underworld. The next thing on the learning curve is the way to heaven or that should heavens is at present permanently shut. Jehovah, Zeus, Odin and all the other deities are at present at war with each other. Ever since the newest realm of Jehovah came about then a massive argument on the merits of entry from the underworld and who should go where and when the end of times should start and even what to call it.
This is the world Simon awoke in after an unfortunate incident with a truck squashing his sports car, after he had hit the car in front of him. He suddenly remembered thinking that the air bags had deployed about a quarter of a second before the truck crushed the back of his Porsche 911 to a third of its size. Then there was darkness followed by a grey yellow light and here he was in the underworld.
One interesting thing to note is that no one looks immediately like they have died as such in the underworld. Everyone pretty much looks quite young or maybe in there early forties. It’s not like those films you see where if you were run over, you get to spend the afterlife with tyre tracks over you.
The fact of the matter is the human mind being completely linked to the spirit heals a lot faster when there is no body attached to it and vanity continues even after the last vestige of life has departed the recently deceased. So the main give away is the very grey palled skin on everyone who enters the underworld.
To be continued.
